If you had the opportunity to go into outer space, would you?

It seems like our (the average person’s) chances of going into outer space are increasing. Wouldn’t it be cool to soar far above our Earth and see our favorite places from far above? We think so!

If you had the opportunity to go into outer space, would you? Does your answer depend on whether or not you’d know if you could return safely or not? Or would you go no matter what?

After you vote, tell us in the comments if you would or wouldn’t go, and why! Thanks!

I have thought about that one way mission to Mars but not sure how I would feel once on our way. It would sure give one cause to pause.

Where does a 70 year old sign up?

I assume if I were chosen it’s because I was healthy enough. Given that circumstance, I would go even if I had no guarantee of surviving.

When I was younger, I would’ve jump at the chance, but now at 64, I’ll just enjoy traveling in my RV.

I would go without reservations [especially since the Shuttle is no longer flying].
A couple of weeks in the space station would be grand !!!
Where do I sign up ??

I am not too keen on air travel. Very happy to drive as much as can rather than fly. Not at all interested in space travel.

No I like my feet on the ground most of the time except the odd flight once and again. 30 years ago I would have said when do we leave. Did a lot of flying in my younger days and dream of always wanting to fly in a SR-71 Blackbird of course it’s only a one seater or the U-2. But now just want to fly down the highways/byways and roads with the 5er in tow.

If I could do it, I’d love to go up and spend a few weeks at a station. Not really interested in the launch, 1-2 minutes weightlessness and return.

I would go in a heartbeat. Grew up in Miami Beach during the late 50’s and 60’s and remember almost every launch from Cape Canaveral. Kept me dreaming. I dive and there is nothing above the water line that matches the vibrancy and colors below the surface. Only 66 and many more years , hopefully, to explore the inner space as well as the opportunity to explore outer space.
Sign me up!

Not at my age, but it would be fun to go on a shorter flight to experience reduced gravity and float around for a minute.

Probably not much more dangerous than driving on an Interstate around a major city with an RV. Especially trying to change lanes when some cars are going 20mph faster than the flow of traffic.

Not on purpose.

I zipline, I balloon, I even drive an RV on 10% grades Going into space is no greater risk and I have dreamed about going since Mercury launched. I’m in my late 70’s and continue to look for new adventures.

I like what Wayne said, no way without my Beagle…

Today is national Walk Your Dog Day.

However where I live, it is too smoky for a dog walk today.

30 years ago the answer would be definitely yes, but at my age it’s just a unfulfilled dream
